Movie Reviews

Irena Tully "Music & Film"
Graham Tully | 02/20/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A fascinating production based on the book by the renowned conductor Claudio Abbado, following his journey from a determined boy dreamer to his "dreams come true" era. The program includes clips from live events, rehearsals and concerts, allowing us to share Mr. Abaddo's feelings, perception and the consequent magical interpretation of the music. A great inspiration for children, and an interesting mix of audio & visual segments to be enjoyed by adults.

What great news!
St. Ives | Southern Calfornia | 01/27/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This video basically recalls the childhood experiences of Claudio Abbado, growing up in Fascist-controlled Milan, Italy, in the thirties and early forties. The VHS version of this program has been around for years, and it is a great yarn, with splendid animation and good video of the orchestral presentations. The only pertinent negative is the extraordinarily imperious narration by Raul Julia, which, even at its worst, doesn't ruin anything, but rather, adds some comedy to an excellent production."
